Using a Makey Makey, Conductive Thread and PureData, we were able to create a controller for a bunch of animations.
The dragon was crocheted using regular acrylic yarn. To trigger the MakeyMakey we used conductive thread hidden throughout the dragon. The animations were made on Photoshop and the sounds were imported from different free audio sites. Enjoy the video!
So for my demo, I had the soft potentiometer control the amount of red in the color of the square, the flex sensor controlled the scale of the square, and the Temperature sensor changed the X translation.
Here’s my video of my Meme Remix assignment.
What I did for this project was to take just videos from Keyboard Cat and Surprised Kitty, and just the sound from Nyan Cat. I used the base program from the Makey Makey in order to get the keyboard input for the program.
When Deborah Aschheim came to our class, her presentation was very interesting. She is very obviously a passionate person, who is willing to stick to what she wants. I have a friend who worked on the project in Fuller so I was aware of the artwork, but actually having the artist explain what she was going for gave me a whole new perspective on the meaning of the piece. I can appreciate the ‘Memory Space’ much better now.
So my Makey Makey project, I chose to make my Warrior sprite walk in whatever direction you pressed on the graphite “D-pad”.
Here’s a Video:
So here is a video of one of my assignments.
For this assignment, I created a bunch of still images that will change based on where your mouse cursor is, and where you click. The images all started the same but I made changes to simulate an animation. The ball bounce is an actual animation made in Photoshop.
